***Max is now RESERVED. We are no longer accepting applications for Max, thank you ***


Max is currently living in one of our amazing foster homes – he’s waiting for his very own family to love him in his autumn years. This is how Max’s foster carer describes him ….

Max is a beautiful old boy and a real Gentleman. He’s very calm and not at all demanding. He enjoys 2-3 short walks a day where he’ll plod along nicely having a sniff at everything. 20 to 30 minutes is plenty for him. He walks nicely on the lead and doesn’t show much interest in other dogs when he’s out.

He’s currently living with my Staffy and they get along fine together. They are both happy to swap baskets every now and then and share a water bowl.
Max sleeps downstairs in his basket, he lived in a bungalow before so doesn’t attempt the stairs at all. He goes to bed fine when we do and I don’t hear anything from him in the night. He waits for me at the bottom of the stairs with a big waggy tail when he hears me coming down in the morning.
Max likes company and will come and sit in whatever room I’m in. Every now and then coming over for a head rub! He has the most beautiful big brown eyes making it impossible not to stop whatever your doing to give head rubs!
He’s been fine left home alone for a couple of hours, I think he just sleeps.
He doesn’t bark if anyone comes to the door but will wander along to see who it is and say hello. Max LOVES his food and can sniff out a ham sandwich from a mile away! He knows not to to try and take it though.

Max is house trained. He won’t walk on shiney floors but will cross from rug to rug. He’s had a good check over by the vet who reports his blood tests showed really good liver and kidney function. He is a bit stiff in his back legs but has just started on anti inflammatory tablets so hopefully that will improve.”

To adopt Max, please complete our adoption application form. We welcome applications from across Lancashire but unfortunately we are unable to consider applications from further afield.
